The polymeric silver(I)-thiolate complex [Ag6(μ3-SC4N2H3)4(μ2-SC4N2H3)2]nhas been prepared from the assembly reaction of AgSCN and sodium pyrimidine-2-thiolate in DMF. X-ray diffraction analyses show that the complex exhibits a one-dimensional chain structure with the metal atom core arranged in distorted tetrahedra sharing apexes. The pyrimidime-2-thiolate ligands in the chain act as both bridging and chelating ligands linking either two- or three-silver(I) centers. The coordination environment of each Ag(I) in the complex is either a distorted tetrahedron of S3N or a triangle of S2N.
